RBI imposes Rs. 1 crore penalty on ICICI Bank, fines Yes Bank Rs. 91 lakhs for non-compliance

Reserve Bank of India has fined private lenders Yes Bank and ICICI Bank over non-compliance.

RBI has imposed a fine of Rs. 1 crore on ICICI Bank.

In a statement, RBI said: " The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has, by an order dated May 21, 2024, imposed a monetary penalty of ₹1.00 crore (Rupees One Crore only) on ICICI Bank Ltd. (the bank) for non-compliance with certain directions issued by RBI on ‘Loans and Advances – Statutory and Other Restrictions’."

"This penalty has been imposed in exercise of powers vested in RBI conferred under the provisions of section 47A(1)(c) read with section 46(4)(i) of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949," the statement said.

The Statutory Inspection for Supervisory Evaluation (ISE 2022) of the bank was conducted by RBI with reference to its financial position as on March 31, 2022.

Based on supervisory findings of non-compliance with RBI directions and related correspondence in that regard, a notice was issued to the bank advising it to show cause as to why penalty should not be imposed on it for its failure to comply with the said directions.

"The action is based on deficiencies in regulatory compliance and is not intended to pronounce upon the validity of any transactions or agreement entered into by the bank with its customers. Further, imposition of monetary penalty is without prejudice to any other action that may be initiated by RBI against the bank," RBI said.

The Indian central bank also imposed Rs. 91 lakh fine on Yes Bank.

In a separate statement, RBI said: "The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has, by an order dated May 17, 2024, imposed a monetary penalty of ₹91.00 lakh (Rupees Ninety One Lakh only) on Yes Bank Ltd. (the bank) for non-compliance with certain directions issued by RBI on 'Customer Service in Banks', and ‘Un-authorized Operation of lnternal/Office Accounts’. This penalty has been imposed in exercise of powers vested in RBI conferred under the provisions of section 47A(1)(c) read with section 46(4)(i) of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949."
